Parametric Study of an Ideal Rankine Cycle with a Reheat

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study, the energy and exergy analysis of an ideal Rankine cycle with reheat is presented. The percentage ratio of the exergy destruction to the total exergy destruction was found to be maximum in the boiler system 86.27% and then condenser and stack gas 13.73%. In addition, the calculated thermal efficiency was 38.39 % while the exergy efficiency of the power cycle was 45.85%. For improvement the power plant efficiency, parametric study has been done and the effect of boiler and reheat pressure and condenser pressure on the cycle efficiency calculated.
